Today I had the unfortunate experience of being stuck in a room with someone for several hours who was just a real jerk. I could use different language (and already have in my rant to James), but I'll just stick with good, old-fashioned "jerk" for the rest of the world.
guess the major reason that this woman was a jerk was because of how
judgmental she was. And how incredibly over-confident she was. And the
way she talked over me and patronized me. And that time she totally
contradicted herself to get what she wanted. And the fact that it was
more important to her to be heard than to listen to the ideas of
Oh, hmm, that's a lot of reasons. Sorry! I
just have a hard time with people like that and it put me in a bad mood.
I try to see the best in people--I really do! And most of the time I'm
really good at it, and I find that I truly do like most people I meet.
But when I feel that a person either disrespects me or the people around
me (especially when it is done behind their back and for the
entertainment of others), I have a really hard time finding any good in
them at all.
It doesn't help that things have been
stressful lately. School started up and the semester got going really
quickly. I feel like I'm trying to be all things to all people, and that
is really hard and darn near impossible! I have a lot of things coming
up in the future that I need to prepare for now: job interviews,
graduation, wedding, licensure exams/applications....And then there are
those pressing things that should have been done yesterday: homework,
readings, emails to friends, balancing my checkbook, bills,
So, with the mood that I'm in and the
to-do list from hell that's sitting next to me, I am getting on a roll
tonight and getting crap done! I shall use my fury for good and
accomplish wonderful things! And I'll also leave you with some beautiful
Pinterest finds that make me smile (because, really, when in doubt, pin it!).
